All About Us:

Formed in the 1950's, Cavalier Trail Riding Club is the second oldest horse club in the Colorado Springs Area. Originally out of Fort Carson, CTRC was a military club that was eventually opened to the military families and then to the public. In the 1970's and 1980's, the club was maxed out at 125 memberships, with 100 people on the waiting list. We aren't quite at those numbers today, but headed that way. Membership dues are $20 for one person per year or $30 per family per year – all ages welcomed!


We don't have a club house or an arena to maintain; which is why we meet at area restaurants or other riding club clubhouses. We focus on trail rides and try to have at least 2 per month in the winter and one a week in the warmer months. We like to ride in the Black Forest, Monument, Douglas County and AFA, but occasionally schedule rides up in Teller and Jefferson County. We donate time to trail maintenance in Garden of the Gods and Section 16.  We are currently in talks with a state park for trail maintenance there as well.


We have a scholarship fund for the next generation of horsemen. Contact us for information if you know of a high school senior or college student in need.
